Great Barnfield Hundred
The hundred consists solely of the western portion of the ancient parish of Hawkhurst, extending to some 6,500 acres in extent*. In this part of Kent the hundreds are very small, and frequently their bounds incorporate only parts of parishes. This is especially true of East Barnfield, which only incorporates a part of a single parish, and its neighbour West Barnfield, which similarly only includes part of Goudhurst.
*: Hawkhurst extends into Cranbrook and Selbrittenden hundreds, and Sussex.
